The first Saturday in June and that can only mean one thing from Timbuktu to Turriff – the annual Feein’ Market in Stonehaven’s Market Square.
This year the Feein’ Market takes place on the 1st June.
The premier event in the town’s entertainment and social calendar will be back again with a packed programme of acts and events in both the Square and the nearby Town Hall and yet again the traditional market layout will extend to take in the Farmer’s Market and to improve the facilities in general for Feein’ Market visitors and stallholders.
At the helm once again for the 13th year will be the members of the Stonehaven and District Lions Club who have spearheaded the transformation of the Feein’ Market since they took over the organisation of the market.
The town’s largest service organisation pledged, when they inherited the running of the Feein’ Market from the local business association, that the club would build on the success of the market, year on year, so that the entire community could benefit. And the club continues to deliver on that promise.
Keith Gatland the Lions Club’s Feein’ Market convener, explained: “We are totally committed to the development of the Feein’ Market so that everyone can benefit – participating clubs, businesses and organisations and visitors alike.
“The bigger and better the event – the bigger the draw and that means more income for all the charities, businesses and organisations with stalls both in the Market Square and in the Town Hall, not to mention more money in the tills for local shops, restaurants and pubs.”
